In recognition of National Alzheimer’s Awareness Month, this show features three renowned Alzheimer’s disease caregiving authors. My guests will take us through their acclaimed books and teach listeners what they can expect to learn from these best sellers on Alzheimer’s care giving. Susan Kohler MS, CCC-SLP works alongside doctors in showing techniques for communication to caregivers of Alzheimer's and Dementia. Her book, "How to Communicate with Alzheimer's: A Practical Guide & Workbook for Families" is wonderful contribution to the community. “Especially if you are living with someone who has Alzheimer’s, the simple act of communication can be challenging between you and your loved one”. Susan is a licensed/certified Speech-Language Pathologist, dedicating the past 15 years as a researcher at UCLA, hospitals and nursing homes. Jacqueline Marcell was so compelled by caring for her elderly parents who suffered with early Alzheimer’s, that once she figured everything out, she gave up her career as a television executive to become an advocate for eldercare awareness and reform. Jacqueline is the devoted daughter in her bestselling book, Elder Rage, a Book-of-the-Month Club selection, with over 50 endorsements including Hugh Downs, Regis Philbin, Johns Hopkins Memory Clinic, and the National Adult Day Services Association. She also received “Advocate of the Year” from the National Association of Women Business Owners at their Remarkable Women Awards. She has appeared on National TV programs and is an international speaker on Alzheimer ’s disease and hosts her own radio program,’ Coping with Care Giving’. As your host, medical doctor and Alzheimer’s disease expert and author of "I Hope They Know: The Essential Handbook on Alzheimer's Disease and Care “and "Espero que sepan...La guía holística para la enfermedad de Alzheimer", we pledge to take listeners through the specifics of what you need to know from these must have books.
